Whirlchain was a divine evocation spell that created a chain that battered one's foe.[1]


The spell conjured a chain around the target creature in a helix fashion, that then whipped and battered the victim before disappearing.[1]


The spell required a metal chain of any kind and any length longer than the caster's own hand.[1]


The whirlchain spell appeared within the Tome of Torment, the holiest book of the church of Ilmater, which first appeared in the Realms in 848 DR.[1]
